The MP Lafer featured in James Bond's film “Moonrker”.
Maybe one of the finest examples of the "fora-de-séries", the MP Lafer was a fiberglass replica of the MG TD. Initially thought by Percival Lafer to be exported, it was only sold in Brazil. As the Gurgels, Pumas, Miuras, Cintras and many, many others, the MP Lafer was built over a VW Beetle chassis with its powertrain. However, since the original MG TD is almost the size of the Beetle, it wasn't hard to project a fiberglass body to fit the VW chassis.
The idea first came in 1971, from the passionated mind of Lafer, and made its debut in brazilian streets in 1974. In the middle, six prototypes were shown in brazilian motor shows. Curious thing is that the replica was actually authorized by MG, and the MP Lafer received an award of best MG TD Replica of the World. Apart from looking great, what greatly helped the popularity in Brazil of the MP Lafer was the closure of our borders in 1976 (and the fact that it basically a classy VW Beetle with fiberglass body, which wouldn't pass the mandatory crash and emission tests of european and american markets).
